Need a pre-listing appraisal? Contact All City Appraisal

Avoid having your home on the market too long or selling yourself short by getting an appraisal to demonstrate the right listing price.

Many people are surprised when they find out that the market value of their house is more than they estimated, so investing in an appraisal from All City Appraisal actually allowed them to get several thousand dollars over what they thought they'd get for their home. There are also plenty of sellers who think their home is worth much more than it really is, and an appraisal helped them to realistically price their home in order for it to sell. Overpriced homes will not attract potential buyers, which means no offers and no closing and that you have wasted valuable time, money, and efforts. Every month your home stays on the market is another month you have to pay its mortgage. All the while you're stuck paying the mortgage while your house sits on the market.

With today's evolving market conditions, you should definitely considering hiring a licensed appraiser to get a sharp listing price for your home.

Working with an agent to list your home? More than likely, you can expect them to provide you with a comparative market analysis (or CMA) that includes comparable sale homes in your local area. It's a customary starting point when determining your home's listing price. If you're going to minimize the house's time on the market and maximize your profit, this is a really important step.

In our opinion, however, you should also get an appraisal from a professional who tracks real estate values for living - BEFORE listing your home - even if you're working with an experienced real estate agent.

That's where we come in! We can perform a pre-listing appraisal so both you and your agent have a detailed analysis of the most recent and similar comp sales and an accurate description of your house's features.

A professional appraisal from All City Appraisal can help you decide on a realistic selling price so your house will interest potential buyers, and we'll also:

  • Be a valuable negotiating tool once you have a potential buyer
  • Provide written proof of your home's quality inside and out to impress buyers
  • Make you aware of problems and eliminate repair hassles at the eleventh hour
  • Decrease the chances of unexpected messes that cause the process to fold
  • Cut out waiting for the buyer's appraisal to have assurance the sale will go through.

Improvements to add value

There are so many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home There are many important questions to ask yourself prior to listing your home -- and All City Appraisal can help with that. Questions like "Would it be better to paint the whole house before we sell it?", "Would it help to put in that new bathroom?", "Do I need to finish my kitchen remodel?"

A kitchen remodel might improve the appeal of a home, but it might not justify the costs you'd pay.
